When food production is disrupted by war there are few defences to natural disaster.WHICH BECOMES A TACTITFUL MILTARY SENSE TO ADOPT TO ELIMINATE A POPULATION OF HUMAN BEINGS IN THE WORLD

Interrelated wars of varying intensity continue in Africa for that and hence such wars in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, Chad, Uganda, Rwanda, Congo and much more talked now of LADO . Much of East and Centra Africa is starving. amidst the terrible suffering , we find the United States and Western European World and their principle humanitarian organizations insisting that the Government of Sudan today especially is committing genocide in Central Africa . This was officially decided in 2002 with the Sudan Peace Act and the position is dutifully echoed by U.S and Western European State Government officials and many government funded NGO's, and the U.S. news media.

If nations of the world agreed that a verifiable genocide were occurring, it would allow the U.S and the whole Western World . to occupy Central Sudan ( LADO ) and gain its assets. There is profit for the U.Sand the alliies . in deciding that Sudan's Government has committed genocide in order to appropriate herself in establishing a founded permanent Military Base on Lado Land which is the Heart of Africa over Sudan . The term Sudan in Arabic means Black refering to Territory Land Areas South of Sahara Desert . However The nations of the world do not agree. Typically and in accordance , for example is to The Director of the World Health Organization who stated in last summer it was not a genocide picture seen in Sudan by the Republic Government of Sudan . " Medecins sans Frontičres " workers have reported it , is not agenocide. And finally the U.N. decided it wasn't a genocide Yet something terrible happened there and is still happening .

Over four million South Sudanese and Sudanic people of Lado became displaced, according to a 1999 estimate and the subsequent diminished
figures suggest the accounts are juggled. In the South of Sudan of which are the Sudanese ( Citizens of the Republic of Sudan ) alone , two million have died from war and starvation brought about by a rebellion and guerilla war. When peace was finally made between the Government of Sudan and the rebel forces in the South Sudanese (SPLM/A), Jan. 9, 2005, the rebels were able to claim the land they won, to negotiate and sell its substantial oil concessions ( The Oil Fields which are deeply found in Lado but not in the so called southern Sudan areas ) . So the war and rebellion was something described as other than tribal differences or and much pitched as raids for slaves.

The leader of the Southern rebellion, John Garang and the Kins who follow suit , all went to Grinnell College in the U.S. trained at the U.S. Army command school. They bear some similarity to Paul Kagame, the current  President of Rwanda, who was also trained at the U.S. Army command school.  In 1990 Paul Kagame began attacking Rwanda from Uganda, and in 1994 invaded  with well armed troops, a modern weapons army supplied by the West , land  forces, precipitating a program of mass slaughters.

Was it a fluke of tribal war that became genocide ? Or was it a carefully  planned NATO operation that discounted African population loss ?

The same Paul Kagame and the present Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni ,  remain under suspicion of having triggered the bloodshed by shooting down  the plane of the former president of Rwanda, using a team under his command.  After long police investigation French courts are calling him to account,  since there were several French nationals on that plane. Nevertheless , In  turn Paul Kagame has accused the French of genocide, since there were French  advisors in Rwanda's defending army. Paul Kagame remains a strong ally of
the U.S.

The death toll of casualties resulting from the U.S. backed invasion, and  the French trained defence, and the massacres of the population, settled at  3,150,000 or 40% of the population, by 1997, according to a Rwandan  ex-minister of Defence. The more one learns of the Tutsi - Hutu war in  Rwanda and Burundi the harder it is to avoid the awareness of a program  which brought about the mass murder.

Aside from the lucrative crime of Sudan and Central Africa ( Lado ) there is  a pattern of heavy population loss throughout what may be a larger theatre of operations. The Tutsi invasion of Rwanda seemed carefully planned .  Kagame's army ordered foreigners out of Rwanda. Then it murdered several  bishops who stayed with their congregations, and foreigners who couldn't  leave. There were supposed to be no witnesses. Amid the reports of fifth  column Hutus who were hunted down were reports of massacres of all and any  civilians. A Belgian with family who couldn't get out and in the end was  rescued, reported that in his area, the massacres of Hutus were committed by  mercenaries serving Kagame's army " the majority of the massacres were  carried out with the arrival of those mercenaries who killed whoever they
met without any ethnic discrimination, in a clear operation of  whole-territory cleansing. One concludes , The Rwandan "genocide" may have
been a military tactic . A similar issue which entraped / envolped in the  tactical War declared on Lado in the famous Uganda National Liberation Army  ( UNLA ) war waged to reoccupy West Region claimed part of LADO which was  and still illegally ceased to Uganda in 1913 / 14 .

Such kind of trend sees really Henry Kissinger, whose hand can be seen in  the mayhem of the Vietnam conflict, in East Timor, in Pinochet's takeover of  Chile, in the Iran - Iraq war, was responsible for long - range planning  which produced the U.S. " National Security Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) " of  April 24, 1974. This " identifies population growth in the less developed  countries ( LDC's ) of the world as a threat to American security " and  perhaps added altogether to the Western European due phylosophy which still  if I may quote again is to Prof. David Lutz's essay, " The Ethics of  American Military Policy in Africa: " "One of the specific ways in which  population growth is seen as a potential threat to American strategic  interests is its impact on the availability of minerals."

In southern Sudan and including Lado the war that John Garang provoked and  fought killed more people than the Rwandan ' genocide ' but more slowly.  Since 1983, most of the two million confirmed casualties died from  starvation. The regional population was displaced. As peace was made in the  South for Souther Sudanese ( excluding the the Sudanic people of Lado " cf :  History of Lado " under pressure from the international community, a new war  to distruct the mind of the World people began to open in the West of the  Republic State of Sudan ( February 2003 ) , Darfur.

A U.N. report verifies that rebel groups in Darfur were trained by rebels  from the South - South Sudanese by Garang and all the Gangesters of the  South . And according to a report from the International Crisis Group ( ICG  ) the rebel group of Southern Sudan, the SPLA, " trained 1,500 Darfurians  near Raja, southwest of the Republic of Sudan , in March 2002 " The article  also finds out in a reason out that Darfur rebels were supplied by ( U.S.  backed) Southern Sudan rebels with arms through Uganda, Eritrea and Chad.

In adapting the war on civilians to Darfur, small groups of guerillas  attacked the Government of Sudan troops, which provoked reprisals against  entire towns. Areas outside the Government of Sudan's control would then  became eligible for U.S. funding made available by " The Sudan Peace Act of  2002." . As a result , Heavy Reprisals came at the hands of paid marauders (  the Janjaweed ) often followed by the Government of Sudan's army. This  beacame where War crimes were widely reported. The war in Darfur and  outrageousness of the reprisals seemed to have little purpose but to elicit  "humanitarian" aid and outside intervention. What of is happening on the  desceet Territory of Lado now . , rests to a Human Mind immagination only !!

The fighting serves to drive people off the oil lands which lies deep in  Lado Land . Here therefore you can see . People of " take sides " have
committed war crimes, but for no reason that serves the people. And while  surrounded by representatives from European - U.S. human rights
organizations. Civilians are always the victims.

Reports that when an oil field is developed, for example the Thar Jath in  1999,the [ Islamic] government of the Republic of Sudan burns the villages  of the people and murders the inhabitants. If true, is the government of the  Republic of Sudan attempting a kind of corporate " favour " ? Should the  Swedish Lundin Oil Company be charged with war crimes ? Is it expedient for  the mining and drilling corporations to murder all the local people who  might one day claim what is in the earth ? Is that the hard deal of selling  concessions to what belongs to the people ? If so it is a genocide but we  should be more critical of our own societies when looking for guilt. So
there is something new at work. Yet it is entirely familiar. Lado 's  Independence is called for to the World FACE . ( see Web sites :




It is really very interesting to learn and in Darfur, a current ( 2006 )  U.N. report concedes 1.8 million internal refugees and 200,000 refugees over  the border in Chad. The war in Darfur prolongs as an economic mechanism  which works effectively in the South Sudan for over twenty years and ...  What of Lado ?

 One Wonders if Southern Sudan Independence is of that meaning to the People of Sudan ( THE BLACK PEOPLE )  ---- ,than otherwise !

If one wishes to find responsibility for "genocide" then, in Sudan and Lado , one might look to the historical record.. What groups have committed genocide before ? Under what historical conditions ? Would they for example, commit genocide for profit ? What some have noted is the propensity of Sudanese in the North, preponderantly Arab and Muslim, to raid for slaves the villages of the south, preponderantly Black and Christian. The U.S. has been able to stand against Slavery in propaganda campaigns against the Government of Sudan. Racial and religious distinctions provided a natural contention to raise when attempting to destabilize a region during early attempts by Israel and then the U.S.

It would be unjust not to remember two points of history which everyone is supposed to forget.

The first is that Sudan's civil war began before independence (1956) to be exact from the Lado - British Wars 1914 - 1919 when it became clear that the post WWII British would not divide the country to honour both the Arab North and Black South. Keeping it together gave power to those who could keep peace between the two. Black army officers revolted in 1955, and a civil war costing 1.5 million lives ended in 1972. The Black forces were called the Anya Nya being Headed by General Joseph Lagu of the Madi Tribe Sudanic LADO origin to secure the Land Territory of Lado

The second point, almost written out of history, is the Kingdom of Lado which exists, yet without formal recognition of its borders and without American approval. The homeland of its tribes approximates much of the area held by U.S.- selected John Garang's army, and extends over European made borders into neighbouring countries. Many of the tribes have been generally displaced by the use of Southern Sudanese citizens for the strategic interests of other Nations.

Settlement of the historical grievance which has kept the African homeland from its people might include Britain, Sudannorth and south, Uganda, Congo-Zaire, Central African Republic, Belgium and France, pledging to guarantee the African Kingdom's integrity as a United Nations protectorate. The Old Kingdom State of Lado must disappear completely on the Face Continent of Africa .

Those with some responsibility for the victory of European-American interests in that Area of Africa during John Garang's funding are: Roger Winter, for years the chief of his own Committee for Refugees, and Susan E. Rice, Assistant Under Secretary of State for African Affairs under Clinton, a protege of then Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, of Roger Winter, and work - along with Philip Gourevitch of the New Yorker at that time and John Prendergast and Gayle Smith both of the National Security Council. Ms. Rice was a long time defender of Mr. Garang and U.S. funding. Actual arms delivery to Mr. Garang's forces has been traced to humanitarian groups :

Norwegian People's Aid , (Daniel Eiffe) - stopped in 1998, and the Norwegian Church Emergency Aid . Michael Harari, of Israel's Mossad, was allegedly involved , as well as Alberto Prado Herreros. both men with previous smuggling experience in Nicaragua supplying the Contras . Human Rights Watch has documented some involvement by Bulgaria . Arms shipments to Uganda and Rwandan troops invading the Eastern Congo were allegedly a U.S. State Department operation working under Ms Rice and Ricardo Zuniga and there is some evidence of the gold rich Congo territory being used for weapons purchase after transporting the gold to the coast.

The distribution of millions of dollars in U.S. humanitarian aid to the South was often accomplished by NGO's working directly for U.S. agencies. Food as a weapon of war was a tactic not initiated by the Government of Sudan but by the aggressor. Subsequently in Darfur for example, the Government of Sudan shows reluctance in cooperating with the NGO's which fueled a devastating war against them using the lands and lives of the innocent.

U.S. operations in Southern Sudan could not have been a secret to anyone working the area. The operation was hidden from the world to promote vast humanitarian expenditures for the war. Starvation was a creation of policy. On Nov. 29, 1999 President Clinton signed a bill directly funding Garang's Sudanese People's Liberation Army.

On February 3, 2006, current Secretary of African Affairs Frazer announced brightly to reporters that John Garang's widow, was in Washington for Bush's State of the Union speech

Considering the meaning of genocide then and the laws against it, an objective application of the law endangers the personal freedoms of these mentioned above. Within a context of the American domestic law against genocide several could face the death penalty. A Congressional hearing would reveal where they received their orders.

U.S. information war needs moral ground, to bend hatred of genocide away from outside interference, to the Government ofSudan. But to insist the catastrophes of Sudan are caused by itself is shameful. Sudan seems to have been marked for attempted destruction when it refused to support the Coalition bombing and ruin of Iraq in 1991.

We are experiencing powerful perception management of the war in Darfur and more still in the extended form in Lado . By February 2006 the attempts to take over another third world country seem to be proceeding according to plan. The mechanisms revealed repeat themselves: a powerful country refuses the African Union adequate funding so the mission is ineffective; which requires the UN to place troops from wealthy allies, the countries / corporate hosts which caused the problems. It is a naked policy, if you consider that the cause of the problems is de-stabilization. I'm not sure there is a way to counter a mechanism of making innocent civilians suffer to the extent that intervention is required, other than documentation, and eventual prosecution for the crimes we find unforgivable. Reparations may eventually be available in U.S., European and Israeli courts (currently victims of the CIA's war in El Salvador are finding some restitution in U.S. courts) holding the individuals to account who caused and carried out the crime, but it is less possible when millions are victim, and simply it may be more appropriate to apply the Convention on Genocide. Reparations are not a viable answer. They are a commiseration in mourning. Vengeance is no answer and partakes in endless war. The Convention on Genocide provides some answer; it clarifies our world by making unacceptable what must be unacceptable, offering some hope that those employing genocide for strategic goals will be recognized and prosecuted .
